Texas State University Reviews
TXST is very diverse and accepting of all different types of individuals. Coming into my freshman year of college I was extremely shy and avoidant but my professors and classmates definitely brought me out of my comfort zone in a way that I feel my absolute best and most confident, especially academically. The amount of resources offered here at TXST are helpful, there is always help around every corner! My favorite part about being a bobcat is the energy associated walking through TXST’s campus, someone is always giving out free food (always accept free food in college), people play music, programs are out in the Quad doing activities at times and the overall feeling from being a student here at Texas State is powerful. If I could restart from my freshman year, I wouldn’t change a thing. Becoming a bobcat at Texas State University was the best decision I’ve ever made, and I am grateful for my high level of education.
Texas State University is a great school! The campus is beautiful and it is much cheaper than other schools in Texas. The location of the school is also a major plus as well. San Marcos sits right in between San Antonio and Austin which great for those looking for internships in larger cities or to simply hang out in on the weekends. Texas State University also has many great programs and clubs to get involved in and spruce up your resume with. But perhaps it's greatest strength is that while Texas State is the fifth largest school in Texas, it still has a more intimate feel to it, a sentiment expressed by many students. It isn't like a huge campus where you feel you are just number in the system, it definitely has a genuine community feel to it. Overall my experience at Texas State has been great, I'd encourage anyone to come check it out!
I am absolutely in love with this University. San Marcos is beautiful, campus is beautiful, the people are beautiful, where can you go wrong? The professors truly care that you succeed here and I couldn't be more proud to call myself a Bobcat! I absolutely LOVE my campus and am so glad I decided to transfer here. We are the only school that has a river running through the middle. You've got to do a lot of walking, but you NEVER miss leg day! If I could stay here forever, I would do so, but soon I'll have to move on!
